WASHINGTON – Ahead of Memorial Day, U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following video honoring the American heroes who have lost their lives serving our nation.
Following Are Blunt’s Remarks:
“The freedom we have as Americans is not guaranteed. It has to be secured from one generation to the next.
“Memorial Day is a day we recognize and honor our service members, who made the ultimate sacrifice or were ready to do that if that's what was necessary.
“They gave their lives and their effort to secure our freedom, others willing to serve to secure our freedom.
“As we observe Memorial Day, I hope we all take a few minutes to remember the heroic men and women who put our lives ahead of their lives to ensure America will always be the land of the free and the home of the brave.”
